Best brake pad replacement for Avid Single Digit 7's
First of all, thank you to bikeforums.net for maintaining such a great resource on the web. I am new to this forum and have found the tandem information very useful.
My wife and I ride a 2001 Santana Visa in the DC area. We have been extremely pleased with the bike. It has allowed us to do everything from centuries to dirt bike paths without any problems.
I need to replace all the brake pads and am considering the cartridge style Kool Stop's in the salmon compound. I am under the impression that these cartridges will slip into the original Avid Single Digit V-brake holders. I also have the impression these will be a superior setup to what we have. Currently, we are using the regular Kool Stop (black compound) all-in-one pads. Although they don't squeal as the original Avid pads did, they weren't an improvement in stopping power.
Has anyone found these to be good or have found a better pad? Normally, I'd just get these and forget about it but I am in the mood to nitpick something!
